Disease specific MMJ strain list

Discussion in 'Medical Marijuana Usage and Applications' started by clinton, Apr 8, 2007.

  1. I posted this on OGF. Thought it should be here also.

    I do visit other mmj web sites. Tonight on (Canadian Medical MJ Site), I found a tread on mmj strain specific to symptoms or diseases. This is a great list to refer to. Remember this is anecdotal accounts but it may help paitents decide which strain to try. I didnt post the link to this thread, as you must join to gain access. I copied and pasted the pertinent parts of the posts for this list. Maybe we can add to this list and maybe someone will compile the symptoms or diseases so we can try strains that may help our conditions. Also remember the medical effects depend upon when the herb is harvested from early to late. I hope this helps someone.

    Hi all- I've been working my way through the various strains, trying to find an appropriate cannabis strain for me. My heart has a tendency to race, so I avoid most Sativas. Here's my experiences so far:

    Romulan: Pleasant slight mental high. *Great painkiller*/minor muscle relaxant. Aided sleep. My heart doesn't race at all on this stuff! Apparently, it has a lower THC content than many, and this may account for it's mellowness. Yeah! It also doesnt make me feel 'stoned' or stupid.

    Blueberry Kush: Medium pain control. Medium body high, STRONG sleep inducer. Knocked me out....twice.

    Peak 19- Too strong! 1/4 of a puff made my heart race for about a half hour, and made me feel like I was going to be ill. I hate this crap!!

    Mango+Durban cross: Decent painkiller, euphoric feeling, 'couch-lock'. Slightly 'stupid' high, and munchie inducer. Makes my fingers feel numb occasionally.

    Trainwreck: Anti-anxiety. Muddled my thoughts a bit but not too much to be disturbing. Good painkiller. Slight heartrate elevation. Extreme munchee inducer.
    The Skunk#1 that was grown on the PainPal system is VERY relaxing for me, it numbs my chronic back pain and is a real easy on the throat smoke. Two reasonable sized bowls and I'm off to "la la land"
    Nevles Haze is really good for psychiactric conditions, mood, and anxiety. I love Sensi-Star for it's ability to control muscle pain and nausea. It also has a wonderful aroma and taste to boot.

    I am curious if the Blueberry is really helpful for muscle spasms. Or what about restless leg? I have been up for the past three nights with restless leg and nothing is helping.
    I had a friend (RIP) who used to swear by Super Silver Haze cookies for his troublesome RLS and arthritic spinal problems. I have a couple of people I caregive that gave the strain a trial. Both of them said that the SSH cookies worked better than Rx medication and that Indica's did nothing for them.

    They also are very good for neuropathy and spasms from Multiple Sclerosis.
    I eat 2 strong cookies a day - like clockwork - and dropped the Rx meds for spasms. This works well for me and it's the first thing I will give to someone
    who has MS or bladder problems that come with MS. Nothing I've used works better.
    I have said it before, the Amsterdam Bubble Funk has a way of getting rid of my HEADACHES when the pinched nerve in my neck acts up with those top of the cranium gems of PAIN. Without a doubt, better than any asprin ever taken, and with immediate relief. As a general pain reliever, this strain does little for my FIBROMYALGIA. For that pain, i rely on Bubble Gum, or Blueberry to get me the relief i need, for the most part.
    afgani trainwreck -for my mind,muscles,pain
    original u.w.-pain-
    l.a. hogsbreath-pain,sleep,..frontal lobe action,lol.
    i dont eat inless ingesting.trainwreck good for that.
    BUBBLE GUM, LIFESAVER, AMSTERDAM BUBBLE FUNK, & Kali Misty definitely help me to cope with my FIBO flare ups, by the way
    AK-47- A more 'active' high, pretty decent munchie factor after a few minutes, and a very pleasant mental haze. Pain relief is definitely also a good plus with this one: an 8 for neuropathic pain, and a 9 for muscular pain. Effects are felt instantly, and although it's very potent, it doesn't make my heart race at all.

    New York City Diesel- This strain tends to put a bit of 'tightness' in my chest. A 7-8 for pain control, and an odd discernable head buzz. This tends to come on slowly for me. Small munchie factor.

    Trainwreck (further thoughts)- This is a really great strain to be active with. I've been using Trainwreck in the morning, followed by small hits of AK-47 throughout the day for pain relief, and it's very effective.
    Medicine Man- Excellent for neuropathic pain. I've been told by some that this is another name for White Rhino....although it doesn't seem to have as 'active' a quality as I expected from this strain. More than any other strain, this cannabis creates a fogging mental haze that can be shaken off if necessary, but really helps with perception of pain. I give this a 10 out of 10 for pain control and general anti-anxiety/mood elevation, however, I'd save it for the night- it's not the most motivating thing in the world, although it is possible to become productive if you push yourself enough.
    Afgooy. Great for stomach stuff as well. Serious couch lock. This stuff will make your face numb.
    M-39- Very happy, decent bodily relaxation, excellent anti-anxiety, and good for cramps.

    Silver Haze- AMAZING for pain- it's a very even head/body buzz, but it's an alert, cerebral one. I want to be busy when I'm on this stuff.

    RomSpice- This is the strongest body high I've ever felt. It literally makes my whole body feel numb and tingly. I give it a 12 out of 10 for pain. It surpasses Romulan by at least half. AMAZING and wonderful! It not only kills my pain- without massive amounts of opiates, but it also helps withdrawl symptoms- VERY well. It brought my aches down to being barely tolerable with advil (as opposed to me lying on the floor aching, shaking and vomiting).

    I highly recommend the club on 9th St. (10th st. is okay too, but the staff isn't nearly as knowledgable) in San Francisco. They know exactly what strains suit which ailments. Apparently, Cindy99 is supposed to be excellent for MS- they make bhang out of the most potent strains they have (RomSpice and Cindy99 for this batch), and many MS patients haven't needed anything more than an occasional advil. AMAZING stuff.

    Anti nausea strains: (I have BAD nausea due to a bad liver, kidney disfunction, and mental trauma/PTSD) RomSpice, Silver Haze, Romulan, NY Sour Diesel, M-39, Blue Moonshine, are ALL excellent- their effectivness is in order from greatest to lesser- but all of them work very well.

    NY Sour Diesel is excellent for anxiety, as is Bubblegum. SD gives an almost tangible sense of relaxation in the head- it killed a developing migraine before it started.
    my personal preference for treating MS, is ANY strong Indica,,, i stay away from any/all pure Sativas,,,

    the reason is the effects from Sativas- energetic up buzz,, activates my spazticity with this disease,,,

    it turns on my shaking in plain terms, makes me shake more,, it makes me vibrate, -try drinking coffeee i end up wearing it.

    so for me,, an Indica,, a very very strong Indica, is what i need to treat my issues with MS- Neuropathic pain,, spazticity,,,

    indicas turn off my spazticity,,,

    someone should take a video of me before/after,, when i am shakin,, what MORE PROOF do these flippin idiots in the medical/political world need???

    and yes they have pills for me,, tegretol,neurontin topomax, all these are RX'd for Epilepsy,, not MS and so NOT COVERED for my treatment??? and they have to be taken in large doses to get symptom relief,, very costly,,,

    FYI- my RX for Sativex last year was also NOT COVERED by BC Pharmacare., they told me it was of NO BENEFIT for me.

    so for Ms in conclusion,, with my needs specifically,, i would have a list with only this-

    NO SATIVAS!!!! Indicas Only!!!!!!
    Nirvana papaya: really helps chronic insomnia esp kief in cooking...

    Nirvana White Rhino: eases some chronic pain and assisted with hunger issues through chemo

    Female Seeds Grapefruit: Great for depression but not so good for anxiety issues.

    Nirvana White Widow: Found to be good for depression and lessens anxiety (again personal opinion here)

    Nirvana northen light x big bud: Good for moderate pain and late picked found to give a relaxing buzz...good for stress through pain, anxiety and long term chemo fatigue.

  8. For sure a sticky sounds good!! Great post man .. very informative. :D
  9. def sticky man

    but i was wodnering sometimes when i smoke my heart races and it kidna freaks me out do you think it is just the strain?

    o and have u tryed the strawberry cough? i read that it was supposed to be a good anti anxiety and i think that would benifit me, i just dnt wana spend 90 bucks and alota time growing for somthign thats not worth it
  10. WOW - Nice! :ey:
  11. this is wonderful, but this list does not include what is needed to cure these problems, only to help cope with them. mary jane along with other natural ingredients can actually cure most if not all these dark energy dwellers. i am working on such a thing right now. do not know when i will be done, but rest assured that i am not wasting my time.
  12. You are right. BUt this is a start to find releaf. I have many painful diseases which MMJ helps me to live more comfortably. For me there is no cure. Ill just live as I have, with pain and maryjane. I hope your work is productive.

  13. thank you for the kind words, but the comment above and ones like it are ones you should avoid saying ever again. it will make a huge difference in your life. just some friendly advice.
  14. <TABLE id=HB_Mail_Container height="100%" cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width="100%" border=0 UNSELECTABLE="on"><TBODY><TR height="100%" UNSELECTABLE="on" width="100%"><TD id=HB_Focus_Element vAlign=top width="100%" background="" height=250 UNSELECTABLE="off"></TD></TR><TR UNSELECTABLE="on" hb_tag="1"><TD style="FONT-SIZE: 1pt" height=1 UNSELECTABLE="on">

    my opinion is that if can be thought it can be said because of the huge difference it may have. peace

  15. I understand what negitive thinking can do. It kills you. I am not down or negative about my body. I have sustained major damage to spine etc. Three breaks in the same place so I am not a candidate for surgery. I dont exclude God healing me out right.

    I have been delt a hand I have to play. I actually live a high quality of life.

  16. Dammit i need MMJ for my back pain and migraines but PA has yet to get with the fucking system. I need to move somewhere where i can get my MMJ card so i can get more powerful Pain Relievers because the doctors dont belive my pain enough to give me a vikinin or percocet perscribtion(which i wouldnt abuse).

  17. as long as the thoughts you say reflect what you really want.
  18. This thread can help some of the people asking these sorts of question.

  19. bump

    please make this a sticky thread.

  20. What do you guys think is the best anti-anxiety strain? Something that just calms me down and mellows me out.
